Certain sex myths are so outrageous, you know they’re bogus as soon as they hit your ears. (Does anyone actually believe that two condoms work better than one?)

There’s No Such Thing as the G-Spot
While scientific journals go back and forth arguing over the precise location of the G-spot, there is no doubt that there’s an area on the front wall of the vagina that—when stimulated correctly—can produce pleasurable sensations for some women, says Debby Herbenick, Ph.D., a sex researcher at Indiana University. But the largest snag in the search for the elusive G-spot is the notion that it can be found. “The research community knows that the sensations are real, but we cannot pinpoint the exact source of the pleasure,” Herbenick says. But just because the G-spot is not a visible mass you can point to—like an elbow or a breast—certainly doesn’t mean it’s mythological, she adds.
